‘Birdman’ Chris Andersen’s Pinecrest home could be yours for $3.94M – Sun Sentinel

With his time as a member of the Miami Heat well in the past, Chris “Birdman” Andersen is looking to move on from South Florida.

The former center, a fan favorite during his tenure from 2012-16, has placed his Pinecrest estate on the market after purchasing the house in 2013.

Built in 1995, the mansion at 5826 SW 107th St., features five bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as a tennis/basketball court. Marble floors and 10-foot ceilings are common inside the home, which also boasts a pool, gazebo, fireplace and an extensive security system.

Andersen oversaw a complete remodeling of the home and was heavily invested in the upgrades, according to Ashley M. Velez, president and founder of P.U.R.E Investments in Coral Gables. Velez is also serving as the listing broker.

The kitchen features beautiful dark wood cabinets, an island and sufficient storage place, including a temperature-controlled wine cabinet.

Guest house quarters are located upstairs in a separate wing of the home and it has its own entrance.

The mansion comes with a two-car garage, but there is ample parking within the circular driveway to fit an additional 10 cars, according to Velez.

Andersen was seeking $4.55 million for the 7,629-square-foot home when it was originally listed on April 7, but the price tag was recently reduced to $3.94 million.

Property records show Andersen paid $1.89 million for the house back in 2013.

Known for his mohawk, bright tattoos and equally colorful personality, Andersen quickly won over fans when he joined the Heat midway through the 2012-13 season. The 6-foot-10 veteran teamed up with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh that year to capture an NBA title.

Andersen appeared in 181 games over parts of four seasons with Miami and averaged 5.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game. The Heat traded Andersen to the Memphis Grizzlies in February 2016 as part of a cost-cutting move.

Andersen’s mansion isn’t the only celebrity home for sale in the exclusive Miami suburb. Retired NBA star Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway, who finished his playing career with the Heat in 2007, is also looking to sell his Pinecrest estate.

In addition, former power forward Lamar Odom, who shined with the Heat during the 2003-04 season, is seeking to unload his 8,557-square-foot-estate in the same neighborhood.

Despite the departures by former players, Pinecrest remains a popular destination for current Heat players. Guard Tyler Johnson resides in the area.
